CULT: HYB: selection, disease resistance

No wonder hybridizers in better climates have such a difficult time
selecting for disease resistance!

Cleaning out some old photo files on my computer, I am astonished by how
absolutely <awful> the foliage looks in those old photos compared to
this year.

Last year with 'normal" freeze damage here was 2002.

This year, foliage on plants here looks like foliage in photos other
folks post.

I knew there was a lot of disease susceptibility here resulting from
those late spring deep freezes (weeks with highs in the 80s F, followed
by lows in the lower 20s F).  Especially when followed by tropical rain,
high humidity (80 to 100%), and temperatures in the 80s F.

But I'm still amazed by how good everything looks right now.

Sympathies to all of you who got hit hard by this last cold snap.  It
hit 30oF briefly early one morning here, but rapidly warmed & I only see
one or two open blooms that were bothered.

Rain, temperatures & humidity supposed to go back to 'normal' later this
week, so I'm trying to enjoy looking at healthy plants while it lasts.
